      Comments about Fostex PM0.4n 36W 4" Active Nearfield Studio Monitor Speaker (Pair, Red):

      These speakers are incredible. Their articulation and the amount of detail is fantastic. When possitioned in the near field they exhibit a 3-dimensional image and realistic soundstage.
      Being comprised of two independently powered extremely compact units (and not a master with a slave unit) makes them very easy to integrate into a 2.1 or surround sound project studio or computer workspace. They're perfectly fine when used full range, but, they'll sound even better when used with a crossover and subwoofer. I'd compare their performance up there with much more expensive Euro-models.

        I purchased these monitors for the size and looks. I wanted something that would give me clarity witout too much bottom end because of the neighbors. Great looking too.

          This is my second home recording studio and the first did not have studio monitors up to this caliber...I can hear things so much clearer and without the stress of wondering if what I hear is what everyone else is supposed to hear.

          Comments about Fostex PM0.4n 36W 4" Active Nearfield Studio Monitor Speaker (Pair, Red):

          Rating this monitor 5 stars may seem excessive, but within the context of what it is in terms of size and expense, it more than earns it in my view. High points would be 103dBC steady state at full tilt, good dynamics during dramatic movie passages and live music/voice recordings, and low distortion during playback. Obviously with a LF-MF piston of 4" the low-end will not shock you, but that 60-100Hz range, the 'meat' of a good drum thwack -will- surprise you.

          The monitors overall ability to resolve low level detail is not something I can comment on yet, as I have not upgraded from my on-board sound, but it should fare well here. This is one product that I would enthusiastically recommend to the neophyte or general consumer/user of music playback systems.

          A last point -- the 'Ferrari' red really seals the deal.
